Genre: Histy, Epidemy
In the late 1340s, a cataclysmic plague shook medieval Europe to its ce. The bacterial disease known to us as the Black Death swept westward across the continent,
leaving a path of destruction from Crimea and Constantinople to Italy, France, Spain, and ultimately most of Europe, traveling as far west as England and Iceland. Within these locations, the plague killed up to 50% of the population in less than 10 years-a staggering 75 million dead.
Many of us know the Black Death as a catastrophic event of the medieval wld. But three vital elements of the sty often go unrecognized:
The Black Death was arguably the most significant event in Western histy, profoundly affecting every aspect of human life, from the economic and social to the political, religious, and cultural.
In its wake, the plague left a wld that was utterly changed, fever altering the traditional structure of European societies and fcing a rethinking of every single system of Western civilization: food production and trade, the Church, political institutions, law, art, and me.
In large measure, by the profundity of the changes it brought, the Black Death produced the modern wld we live in today.
While the sty of the Black Death is one of destruction and loss, its breathtaking scope and effects make it one of the most compelling and deeply intriguing episodes in human histy. Understanding the remarkable unfolding of the plague and its aftermath provides a highly revealing window not only on the medieval wld but also on the fces that brought about the Renaissance, the Protestant Refmation, and modernity itself.
Speaking to the full magnitude of this wld-changing histical moment, The Black Death: The Wld's Most Devastating Plague, taught by celebrated medievalist Dsey Armstrong of Purdue University, takes you on an unfgettable excursion into the time period of the plague, its full human repercussions, and its transfmative effects on European civilization.
A Catastrophe Unprecedented in Human Experience
In 24 richly absbing lectures, you'll follow the path of the epidemic in its complete trajecty across medieval Europe. You'll examine the epidemiological causes of the disaster; the social panic it spawned; its influence on religion, society, politics, economics, and art; and the long-term consequences f a continent that, less than two centuries later, would have the technology and the wherewithal to exple a new wld.
In the process, you'll learn about these remarkable and emblematic effects of the Black Death:
By revealing the cruption and inadequacies of the Church in the face of people's desperate need, the plague sowed the seeds of the Refmation.
The plague upended the class system in Europe, permanently changing the balance of power between labers and lds, peasants and nobles.
The epidemic transfmed social opptunities f the wking and merchant classes: peasants could become clergy, serfs could become tenant farmers, merchants could marry into the nobility, and women could enter trades and professions.
Perhaps most surprising of all, those who survived the plague were often wealthier than they'd been befe, and had access to me opptunities.
These changes utterly upended structures of social, economic, and religious power that had been in place f centuries, leaving chaos in their wake-and room f new ideas and institutions to arise.
